Helloo lovely bookworms!
Today is a really special day because it’s my first blog tour ever and I’m so so happy! Thank You to Shalini for giving me this opportunity and of course Robbie Yates for writing such an amazing book for kids!
The humming noise got louder. Adam willed himself to focus. He had to finish his math test.
Suddenly, the noise became unbearable. He glanced up.
Mrs Murphy was inches away, leaning over another kid’s desk. Was the noise coming from her?
Every child remembers a teacher who was a little bizarre, prickly or ill-tempered. Some teachers, though, are very odd indeed, and warrant some closer attention…
This quirky chapter book will thrill kids who are adventurous, brave, and a little bit cheeky!
Three Signs there’s Something Wrong with your Teacher
A Guest Post by Children’s Author Robbie Yates
We all have weird teachers from time to time. Usually, they’re harmless—but you might be wondering when it’s worth paying a bit of closer attention. It turns out there are three particular behaviors to look out for.
1. Too much coffee (or not enough)
We all know the type: teachers who drink coffee like it’s going out of fashion, arriving at every class with a fresh mug of liquid patience.
If your teacher seems to drink more than normal, though, that might be cause for concern. It isn’t good for their health—and all those caffeine jitters probably aren’t helping their teaching skills, either.
Of course, the opposite can be problematic, too. If you have a teacher who never seems to drink coffee or tea, you should probably wonder why—because that is very suspicious behaviour indeed.
Teachers need to nip out of the room every now and then—for photocopying, or bathroom breaks, or whatever else it is that teachers do when they’re not teaching.
It’s when they disappear for longer periods of time that you should be worried.
What are they doing back there in the staff room? Rehearsing for a flash mob? Having a hotdog-eating contest? Breakdancing?
Whatever it is, it’s bound to be suspicious.
3. Being nice to your parents
Teachers’ jobs are basically to make sure you pay attention in class, and maybe learn a thing or two. As a result, Parent-Teacher Interviews can be a source of stress for the misbehaving student.
If your teacher is a little nicer than you’d expect—and especially if your parents say that they like her, well. You should be worried. You should be very worried indeed.
When Adam Miller noticed his teacher doing some of the suspicious things listed above, he decided to start taking notes. Soon, he had quite the comprehensive list of his teacher’s Very Odd Behaviors.
When he decided he had enough reason to truly start investigating his Very Odd Teacher, however, he never would have predicted what he’d find out…
Thank Youu Robbie for the amazing Guest Post! If there’s one thing I haven’t been able to leave in my childhood are children books, I just find them entertaining and funny and they make me feel so happy in a way that very few of the books I should be reading for my age can make me feel! One Very Odd Teacher by Robbie Yates, is one of the best children books I’ve read, it’s so interesting and funny and the little mystery makes it just perfect, because let’s be honest, we all had a really odd teacher.
